TFW you are walking on a trail and in the distance you think you see someone walking a dog and you get all excited then they get closer and you see it is just a tote bag

Kate stands center stage.

Let’s process this feeling.

Kate picks up a remote and turns on a projector aimed at a screen up stage.

We can use the acronym RAIN to help us.

On the screen behind her appear the capital letters “RAIN”

First, you can R, RECOGNIZE that you are having the feeling.

Kate pauses and presses the remote. The screen changes to the title “TFW…” in its entirety.

Next, you can A, ALLOW the feeling to be here.

Kate pauses and presses the remote. The screen changes to the title “TFW…” in a much larger, fatter font size.

Then, you can I, INVESTIGATE how the feeling feels in your body. Do this kindly.

Kate pauses and presses the remote. The screen changes to “like a sadness goblin is sitting on my chest pulling down the corners of my mouth”

Finally, you can N, NOT-IDENTIFY with the feeling and give yourself some distance from it.

Kate pauses and presses the remote. The screen changes to the title “TFW…” in a much smaller, blurrier font size.

Now thank yourself for taking the time to process this feeling.

Curtain.
